Apple’s Big iPadOS Update Could Be Delayed
According to Gurman, Apple’s decision to delay the launch of iPadOS 16 stems from the idea that the upcoming version of the OS would be a significant upgrade in terms of the iPad’s multitasking capabilities. It seems Apple engineers have had issues integrating these newer functionalities into the software in a manner that is intuitive and easy to get used to.
iPadOS 16 will debut a feature known as Stage Manager for multitasking on the iPad. This method of multitasking will be markedly different from the multitasking approach the company follows for desktop machines (running macOS). The primary goal here seems to be making the multitasking experience on iPadOS and macOS as distinct as possible. And by the looks of it, achieving this is proving to be a major headache for Apple engineers.
Gurman also states adverse feedback from Apple’s developer community as one of the reasons for the delay. Having played around with iPadOS 16 Beta for a while now, these developers have not only pointed out several bugs; the general feedback seems to be that the new interface for iPadOS 16 is confusing. Many of these developers have also reported compatibility issues with their apps.
Since Apple may launch a new M2-based iPad Pro in the months ahead, delaying the release of iPadOS 16 might make sense for the company. What remains to be seen is how existing iPad owners will respond to this unusual delay from Apple.
